Moore Problems: Shock Torched Again By Minnesota Star

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota -

The Tulsa Shock has a problem with Minnesota and Maya Moore. A big one.

Moore scored 32 points to help the Minnesota Lynx beat the Shock 93-82 on Wednesday afternoon.

Moore, who has at least 30 points nine times this season - including each of the three meetings against Tulsa, leads the league in scoring.

Lindsay Whalen added 18 points for the Lynx (17-6), who improved to 17-1 against the Shock since 2010.

Glory Johnson had 16 points and 10 rebounds for the Shock (7-15), who have dropped five straight games. Skylar Diggins led Tulsa with 19 points, but shot just 6-of-18 from the field. Odyssey Sims also had 16 points but struggled from the field as well, going just 5-of-14 from the field.

Overall as a team, the Shock managed to shoot just 40.9 percent and 4-of-17 from 3-point range.

The Shock erased double-digit deficits in the first, second and third quarters, but couldn't overcome their own miscues and six Lynx players with at least 10 points.

Tulsa had 17 turnovers, 11 of those coming on steals by the Lynx, and had just 11 assists on 27 baskets compared to Minnesota’s 21 assists on 34 baskets.
